Note: Reports prior to Sept 2023 were originally graded out of ten, and also included additional categories that have been merged into the current categories.
This likely results in the overall ratings prior to 2023 being decreased in comparison to reports since Sept 2023.

For an `Apples to Apples` comparison between players, we recommend only comparing reports before, or after, Sept 2023.
Results will average out accordingly as more data is accumulated.

Hague brings a combination of size and sneaky skill.
He's a good skater for his stature and has the ability to lead the rush or join as an extra layer.
When he has time to walk the offensive blue line he shoots the puck a ton and has the ability to beat NHL goalies from range.
The majority of Hague's TOI comes at ES and PK. He matches up against top six / middle six opponents. His size is an asset in the defensive zone. He's long / rangy and willing to close physically. His span makes it difficult to make plays 'around'.
In his first 10 game segment to start the season Hague averaged 19:07 TOI - 16:47 ES - 0:03 PP - 2:16 PK. He's scored 1G-2A and was credited with 10 hits and 14 shot blocks.
